Episode 1

Meh, this is just another one of those magical girl shows as it follows just about the same formula. Girl gets in trouble, girl becomes mahou shoujo, some talking animal gives her powers, and she saves the day with bigger threats awaiting. That shamisen guy sure was a pretty lame enemy.

I reiterate what I said in the comments to one of the CR News articles about the show:

J.C. Staff surely has better things to do with their time.

This is supposed to be a parody, right? If so, it's not a very good one as it's way more stupid than funny. If it's supposed to be a serious show, though, I just don't know what to say.

So a man with a three-string guitar, that he doesn't know how to play, sucks the essence of little girls in an auditorium. A passing redhead notices, talks to a hedgehog only she can see, who gives her the power to activate her lucky egg, and discovers that wedding bands break barriers. The butt wiggle was a nice touch, though.

This is really the least threatening magical girl show in the last 10 years.

More Twin Angles? Oh, all right. It's first to me. Although i can't say i'm impressed. That fight wast rather stupid they it went and evil guy lost that easily? Let's just hope that going gets at least a little better than this.

This anime might equal or surpass Frame Arms Girls in terms of awfulness. That guitar song that kept playing even when they were talking (for 5m?) almost made me throw the pc from the window..it was so irritating.

I'm betting it's a case where they own the license so have to use it or lose it. They produced the second Twin Angels series in 2011 so here it is 6 years later and we get the third. With the success of Sailor Moon Crystal it would make sense if they wanted to hold onto a "Magical Girl" license of their own.

This is a sequel? Geez it was awful, though I seem to remember there being a Twin Angels hentai too, I'm gonna assume the Japanese titles are different.

I don't think there was anything bad about this at all. It hit every necessary mahou shoujo beat.

Which is, of course, the ultimate problem. All it was interested in was hitting the exact beats for a mahou shoujo series. It was doing nothing interesting, not even trying to create anything remotely new.

But since I like even by-the-numbers mahou shoujo, I'll give it a few eps to see if it develops any kind of identity of its own.
